*** NOTE: YOU NEED AN URBANTRACKER DEVICE TO USE THIS APP***
What it is
The Urban Tracker is the tracking device you are missing since long time: it is a small and discreet device that has the ability to geo-localize whatever has value for you. That includes objects, pets, and loved ones. It operates effectively in open air as well as in a closed environment where standard GPS devices are often behaving as blind pieces of hardware.
How it works
Differently from GPS technology, our solution geo-locate objects interpolating information and data collected from the available communication bearers. The new approach has the advantage to work also where standard GPS implementations fail or, at best, return highly inaccurate positioning data. The perfect environment for the Urban Tracker is downtown streets (city canyons), parks and urban woodlands; tree fitted avenues as well as any indoor spaces.
When the device is active, the detected position and recorded tracks can be visualized on a mobile app.
Small and lightweight:
Because the UrbanTracker does not need a GPS sensor, the dimension of the device is very small and it can be installed in a hidden position on almost any object; it fits easily also when complex shape and limited mounting space are an issue (e.g. the seat or seat-post of a bicycle).
The location of the device is calculated using the mapping of visible network transmitters, using geolocation details available from public and private information sources. As mobile networks are visible in both indoor and outdoor environments, the Urban Tracker also works in the two different situations.
Battery life is extraordinary long: the absence of a GPS sensor, together with smart power management strategies, keep the need for electrical power at very low levels. The effective operational time between battery recharges is a breakthrough compared to similar devices available in the market.
